PRIOR LEARNING ASSESSMENT
Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) is a process
of giving course credit to adult learners for skills and knowledge
acquired through past work experience that is equal to College
level learning. If you can demonstrate that the knowledge
you have obtained meets the standards of a College course,
you may be eligible for a credit.
Prior Learning must be demonstrated by way of a challenge
process which measures learning through a variety of methods.
Through a PLA, students often realize how much they have learned
in the past and become more confident about pursuing other
courses. Contact your local College or visit their website
for details of this opportunity.
